Pool Time

I am a swimmer...you couldn't tell it by looking at me, but it's true, I am! We grew up with a pool in our backyard (thanks Poppy!) From about mid-May until late September, Nathan, myself, and my dad were always in the pool. Some of the best memories that I have are from that pool. I want Parker to have the same memories that I have. Well not the same, but you know what I mean - look back on his childhood and say, "Remember when..." just like my family and I do. Not only did we have a pool, but I spent all 4 years of my high school career on the swim team...loved it and loathed it...loved to be in the water, loathed the early morning practices...I digress, I want Parker to love the water just as much as I do, so exposing him to the water is my plan to make him love it! Ha - great plan, right?!

On Saturday, the fam went to the pool at the country club. We went early enough that we had the entire pool to ourselves! We didn't have to worry about kids splashing or us being in the way - it was marvelous! The first time we went, it was the very beginning of June and the water was NOT warm at all...Parks was a trooper and enjoyed it as much as he could. I decided to buy a blow up pool for our play dates with my mommy friends and their kids and he was NOT having that water, so I was a little apprehensive about taking him back, but he LOVED the water this time around!

Here are some pictures from Saturday:

New Find

Everyone who knows me, knows that I am addicted to reality TV, jewelry, and blogs...among many other things! The blog tab under my bookmark tab on my computer is ridiculously long and I unabashedly stalk each and every one! A new blog that I found is AH-MAZING! Jen at tatertotsandjello.com is so warm, creative, and her projects - ah! She is featuring a great giveaway right now from janeandme.com. I would definitely recommend checking out both places!

7 Months and 3 Years

My oh my, this post is long overdue...again!

Things have been a bit cray cray around the Cannedy Household...summer school, getting a new room ready (no not baby - classroom)...all on top of the Parks man. What has been going on you ask (pretend that you did...)? Well, let me enlighten you!

 This is 7 Month Parker...
And this is 7 Month Momma - YIKES!

Needless to say, 7 month Parker has been a little tough on his momma!  Between the frustrations of teething and trying to crawl, my normally happy baby has been extra fussy and very temperamental...NOT unlike his momma! HAHAHA! Parker has one tooth about to break through and one not far behind. I am hoping that it happens soon because I hate that he hurts and I can't do anything for him - breaks my heart. However, I have some REALLY exciting news - on Monday, July 11th, my sweet baby boy crawled for the first time. It is such a bundle of emotions. I am so glad that he is progressing and reaching milestones, but I am so sad that he is not my little baby anymore AND I am not going to be able to leave him in the floor and run to the next room quickly and know that he is going to be just where I left him. Kane and I will be Parker-proofing the house this weekend...I hope I don't forget how to unlatch the toilet lock! Ha

Now, on another note...3 years ago, Kane and I were doing this:
That's right...3 years ago, Kane made the best decision of his life - HA! We had a great evening. We had dinner and then went to see Transformers in 3D - AH-MAZING!!!!!! Plus, Parker got to spend the night at his nana's house - thank goodness for grandmothers...I got to sleep allllll night and so did Parker! I sure am grateful that he slept all night for Monda and thankful that we have such great people in our lives.

That's about all that's happening right about now...I do have a couple of fun posts coming up soon, so check back soon!
